Nick Confalone’s father recorded his family coming down the stairs for Christmas every year for the last 25 years. Just in time for the holidays, Confalone has edited together the home movies into an ode to holiday joy, and released the adorably sweet compilation soundtracked by Vince Guaraldi’s bittersweet “Christmas Time is Here.”
The video captures all the excitement and anticipation of Christmas morning and shows how families grow and change over the years. The video is sure to bring some extra Christmas joy to the world and hopefully inspire other families to make the most of their holiday memories.
